Is there such a thing as a reading slump? The reason I ask is that last year (the first year on record) I averaged just under eight books per month. This year? Just over six books per month (with the results from earlier this year skewing the total IMO). My friend Kerry appears to be in a similar predicament. It's just that I'm finding that whatever book I'm currently reading isn't holding my interest. It requires effort to read....anything. My concentration just ends up wandering from the book at hand to the next on the TBR pile. A classic case of unsatisfieditis! So, is it me or is it the books I'm currently reading? (Personally, I'm more than inclined to lay the blame squarely on me because the books I've been reading aren't bad by any stretch of the imagination.)
I love to read but I just feel like the zing has gone... (And yes, this post is all about my relationship with books, not with a male.) Have you ever been in a reading slump? Any ideas on how to cure this gratefully received *grin* I did think about re-reading a keeper, although I'm worried that my opinion of the book will irrevocably change) or perhaps reading a new book from a series that I love. Oh! *acts surprised and fails miserably* What a coincidence! The latest book (Branded By Fire) from one of my favourite series will be released in *checks watch* five days! Oh, and FYI - Nalini is holding a countdown party for Branded by Fire at her blog (with lots of book giveaways).
